Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Toronto and Research Associate at the Centre for Urban and Community Studies. Her current research and publications integrate issues of citizen and workers rights into the analysis of transnational migration, migrant labour market incorporation, and immigrant political participation. Focusing on Latin American migrant populations, her work considers how immigrants sustain global networks of economic, cultural and political engagement and the cumulative consequences of these border-crossing relationships for immigrant families, communities of settlement and places of origin, as well as for the nation-states that are linked together by migrants’ back-and-forth movements. Patricia Landolt received her B.A. and M.A. from York University and her Ph.D. from The Johns Hopkins University. She joined the University of Toronto in 2001.
